Auto Busy / In a Meeting Email

Hi,

 

I posted something similar a few days ago but I have changed requirement a bit.

Is it possible to send an automated email when I'm busy in a meeting. 

The flow will trigger on incoming mail, check my calendar and if busy send out an email to trigger mail. 

 

Thanks,

Hi @BPSYD,

 

You could refer to the following steps:

 

Initialize an integer variable named Busy and set default value to 0, means not busy.

Then Get events, loop through all to check if there is any event in range of start Date and end Date, if there is, set Busy to 1.

After all loop, if the Busy is equals to 1, reply the Email just received.

Hi @v-litu-msft 

 

Thanks for reaching out and assisting me with this. I have tried your steps see below but seem to be getting an error message in the first condition.

Hi @BPSYD,

 

Yes, if the first event not satisfied the condition, it will skip Set variable action.

To test, you could create an event, then check the Condition 2 whether go to Yes branch:Annotation 2020-06-23 093743.jpg

@v-litu-msft This works BRILLIANTLY. THANK YOU

Last question before I give this answer the tick.

Would you know of any reason why recurring meetings don't behave the same way as a once off meeting?

Thanks,

Hi @BPSYD,

 

  • One-time meetings – These meetings have a set date and time, as well as a unique meeting ID and audio information. 
  • Recurring or online meeting room meetings – These meetings also have a unique meeting ID and audio information, but they do not have a set date or time. 

These repeat meetings based on the original meeting ID, when getting an event it will regard as original event time.
